- New job, fancy a new bike. 100/120mm full sus.
As an Anthem owner, all I would say is that it rides much better than I could have expected a 100mm bike to ie it feels like it has much more travel. It climbs better than a hardtail and encourages you to go quicker every where.
Look to 2011 models for absolute bargains and better specs.Posted 5 years agobradleyMember
Something more fun on the less demanding stuff…hardtail, surely? Unless you’re version of demanding is the alps and less demanding is black run trail centres…A well specced, light hardtail would suit me down to the ground. I currently only own a £400 hardtail with 100mm forks, but I can’t ever see me getting a full sus as i’m constantly reading of how guys are getting bored of ‘point and go’ attitudes when on FS.
Just my opinion though ^^, canyons FS bikes around the 1500 mark seem good value for money :pPosted 5 years ago
Built my own road bike, and yup, very rewarding, but also expensive and time consuming, not so much the much building but finding and speccing the parts!
Less demanding does indeed mean black trail centre stuff. I’ve got a hardtail as well, but im a sucker for having more bikes than I need. Its also nice to have spares than can be lent to family members and friends when needed.Posted 5 years ago
Got myself a new job and fancy a new bike as a reward. I’ve currently got a 160mm Norco fluid lt which is great on big mountains and fast, rocky stuff, but Id like something a little less weight which will be more fun on the less demanding stuff.
So, what would you all recommend? Budget of about £1500, new or 2nd hand. 100-120mm travel, full suspension.
Have looked at an st4, x-flow, camber and an anthem x already, anything else I really should consider?Posted 5 years ago
